What's For Dinner?

I am one of those lucky moms that only has to fix one dinner.  Maybe I am just too tired to do more?  I have never really had to fight with my children about food.  They are not picky eaters, thank goodness...well, the jury is still out on a few things in regards to Charlie.  All of them love for me to peel a cucumber and let them eat the whole thing.  Little grape tomatoes are also a favorite.  Anyway, Tonight's dinner is my Mack's favorite (and Max's).  We grilled fillets that were perfect!  I fixed twice baked potatoes and a salad with fresh garden veggies.  My children all cleaned their plates. 

I have been told, by several friends, that food is a huge battle with their children.  I guess they get their love of food from me.  Growing up, I was just like my sweet papa.  He always had to end a meal with something salty. 

My papa would always save a bite of dressing or a roll on holidays to eat after dessert.  To this day, I will choose salty over sweet.  Max is the same way!  I guess some things are just in the genes.
